Chapter 772: Thousand Fey
The spirit cruiser shuttled through the cosmos, but although it traveled at a high speed, in the vast cosmos, it felt as though it was not moving. It was like a dead branch floating in water in an extremely quiet fashion.
Yi Yun had already arrived in this spirit cruiser for several hours. When he woke up again, he realized he was sleeping on a soft depression. Below him was a thick mat. It was unknown which spirit beast's feathers the mat was made of. It was extremely soft, and he was covered in a cotton quilt which was very warm.
At this moment, Yi Yun was already fully awake, but was only extremely weak. Having consumed his blood essence and then using power his body could not withstand, he had received a energy backlash. Following that, after entering the spatial storms, most of his meridians were severed, so his present situation was truly wretched.
If an ordinary warrior were in Yi Yun's situation, it would be a question if they could even recover from those injuries. It was very likely to cause lingering problems in the future, affecting their martial paths.
However, Yi Yun had the Purple Crystal Origins, allowing him to constantly absorb Heaven Earth Yuan Qi to repair his body. Furthermore, his body was a perfect Yang body, so he was not afraid that he could not join his meridians back up. He did not need to worry about this at all.
The only problem was Yi Yun having to spend a period of time being weak.
Inside Yi Yun's Dantian, the injuries the Draco First True Gold avatar and Demon God puppet received were much lighter, especially the Demon God puppet with a strong vitality. It nearly did not lose any of its combat strength. Yi Yun estimated that once he recovered 30–40% of his strength, he would be able to control the evil energy. Then, he would be able to summon the Demon God puppet, and not be afraid of losing control of it. This way, he would have the means to protect himself.
Now, Yi Yun was only worried about Lin Xintong. Having been caught up in the spatial vortex, it was unknown where Lin Xintong had gone.
"Eh, you have awakened?"
At this moment, a girl about 13–14 years of age with a round face walked into Yi Yun's resting room. Her skin was white and she had rosy cheeks. She looked very cute.
The girl made a pot of tea after entering the room. Her dressing looked like she was a maid servant, but of course, that pot of tea was not prepared for Yi Yun.
"Yes, I have woken up...Thank you for saving me."
Yi Yun said sincerely. If not for this spirit cruiser, he would probably be floating in space for 7–8 years, slowly recovering his injuries by absorbing minute amounts of Heaven Earth Yuan Qi.
Although 7–8 years was considered a very short period of time for Yi Yun's lifespan, but time was very precious in the first half of Yi Yun's martial path.
Warriors had long lifespans, easily a hundred thousand years or a million years. However, they could only improve their cultivation realms fastest in their youth, when their life's potential was at its fullest.
Many warriors would do it in one go and rush to the highest cultivation realm they could. Once their potential was exhausted at a particular realm, or if they encountered a bottleneck, then they would be stuck in that realm. In the hundreds of thousands of years in the future, their cultivation level realm would, at best, improve by one full realm. Unless they encountered a stunning opportunity, nothing surprising would happen.
The 7–8 years was not something Yi Yun could afford wasting.
Upon hearing Yi Yun's words, the maid servant began to giggle. "The way you speak sounds so funny."
The maid servant felt as though she had discovered a new continent. Having arrived in the 12 Empyrean Heavens for the first time, Yi Yun did not know the 12 Empyrean Heavens's language well. He could only use the memories of what the Azure Yang Lord used back in the Great Empress mystic realm; hence, the sentences he said were broken and sounded weird. But because of that, he was made fun of by this maid servant who still had a young child-like heart.
"If you want to thank, thank my Missus. She was the one who saved you," The maid servant said, but suddenly thought of something, before carrying on. "My name is Tao'er. Stay here and rest. Our spirit cruiser will probably take another 4–5 days before returning."
Seeing the maid servant carry the teapot away, Yi Yun hurriedly called out to her to stop her. "That...Miss Tao'er, I wonder where your Missus is. I want to meet her and thank her in person."
Having been saved by others, meeting them personally to thank them was courtesy, besides the crux of the issue was...Yi Yun wanted to gather news about Lin Xintong.
After Yi Yun and Lin Xintong attained the third stage of the 'Great Empress Heart Sutra', Yi Yun and Lin Xintong had already begun developing a vague sense of telepathy between themselves. At distances very close to each other, they could vaguely sense each other's presence.
But now, Yi Yun could not sense her at all. Without a doubt, Lin Xintong was not on the spirit cruiser.
But even so, Yi Yun wanted to ask the Missus the maid servant talked about. He wanted to hold on to the unlikely hope of being able to find Lin Xintong's whereabouts.
"That isn't necessary." The maid servant nonchalantly waved her hand. "To speak the truth, our Missus might have saved you, but it's just a trivial matter for her. She wouldn't put her mind on it. My Missus is busily cultivating, and has many important things to do. I believe our Missus will not have the time to meet you."
After the maid servant said with a giggle, she turned around and left.
Seeing the door close, Yi Yun sighed. Indeed, in his present state, he was like a refugee. He was injured from top to bottom. Tao'er's Missus saved him only out of the kindness in her heart. As for thinking highly of him, that was impossible.
It was a question whether he would be able to meet the Missus while the spirit cruiser was out on a mission for 4–5 days. And even if he met her, she would most likely not help him find Lin Xintong.
"Xintong...nothing must happen to you."
Lin Xintong's nomological insight might be inferior to his, but her cultivation level was similar to his. Since he was fine passing through the spatial turbulence, Lin Xintong should be fine...
Yi Yun tried to consoled himself, and began to meditate. He was severely wounded, so he needed to take the opportunity to recuperate.
The spirit cruiser sailed through the cosmos, and the Luo clan seemed to be carrying out a mission. There were people entering and exiting the spirit cruiser on a daily basis.
After all, in the territory of others, Yi Yun did not probe what they were doing. He only stayed in the room, as if he had been forgotten. In the next few days, only Tao'er would occasionally appear in his room, to retrieve something or bring Yi Yun some spirit food.
As time went by, Yi Yun became rather familiar with the maid servant.
Although Tao'er was a 14–15 year old maid servant, she was already at the peak of the Purple Blood realm and was about to break through into the Yuan foundation realm. Compared to the young elites in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, she was already nearly a grade above them.
The maid servant wasn't a scheming person. She told Yi Yun many things, and from their conversations, Yi Yun slowly had a general idea of the 12 Empyrean Heavens, or at least, he knew which of the 12 Empyrean Heavens he was in.
Back when Yi Yun planned on heading to the 12 Empyrean Heavens, he wanted to go to the Yang God Empyrean Heaven the most.
The Yang God Empyrean Heaven was the hometown of the Azure Yang Lord, where he rose up, becoming one of the 72 Divine Lords of the Yang God Empyrean Heaven. Finally after being betrayed by his beloved woman, he lost his position as Divine Lord. He was then severely injured, affecting his cultivation level greatly. It could be said that he was left with nothing.
The Yang God Empyrean Heaven buried the Azure Yang Lord's ambitions, and made him obsess over it. Even though the Azure Yang Lord met the ancient Great Empress, and fell in love with her, he never got rid of the obsession regarding the Yang God Empyrean Heaven. Only at his death, did he see through it all.
However, when the Azure Yang Lord slightly opened up the Tian Yuan world's seal, revealing one or two spatial nodes. This spatial node linked not to the Yang God Empyrean Heaven, but the—
Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven!
